Happy to chip in a % so that you don't end up too much out of pocket if that is helpfull ?
C da C.
I've had a couple of deals on here that while not worth shouting about, weren't as described. On the other hand, I have had numerous trades and purchases on here that have been as described and often even better.
The iTrader system on BB works well and seems to take little mod time, but a decision needs to be taken as to whether the occasional bad trade on here merits it I guess.
Really its nothing to do with BCUK, I got stiched up on a stove and one other item, total loss to me about £70. In the past I would send before payment to make sure the buyer was happy but now I would only send via a signed for courier service and after I have received and cleared the payment. Also NEVER send via paypal marked as a 'Gift' because IIRC you have no recourse to get your money back. One thing BCUK could do is ban sales asking for 'Gift' payments. Sellers should include the fees when coming up with a sale price.
It leaves a sour taste but it means I'm now very careful with buyers unless I know them. 99.99% of members here are as good as gold so don't be put off just cover yourself.
That is a very knid offer g4ghb and a pm has been sent
On another note my original post while frustrated in tone was more an enquiery as to the course of action when trades are not going well rather than a witch hunt on the person I traded with.
The chap I traded with has now reconsidered and has offering an olive branch.
Get yer whittling on
received and attempted to reply - but you have exceeded your pm quota mate - time for a clear out mate!
Well that's a result then.
I'll have the belt then, thanks g4ghb
Seriously though, glad to read something positive's come of it.
sorry mate have now sorted got a few pms in one go
Possible hijack here.
What is the most you have lost in a trade or sale?
I lost 2 fishing reels,total value £360.I have proof of posting and delivery but the chap swears blind he never got them.This was a trade from over a year ago.
I couldn't claim from RM as they had the correct signature,it was too far to go and have a face to face,and the chap has since disappeared.
ouch ! that's gotta hurt !!
I have had a couple of trades go bad - the main offenders are overseas members and are now no longer posting on the site so I have a world of trouble in even thinking about restitution...
All my UK trades have eventually come good, though a bit of nagging has sometimes been the only way to get the message home.....
